Raft represents an extension of the riverbank. The main idea was to create a pleasant environment, like staying under the ”tree shadow” an also above water. Atrium space is the central motif, with elements of natural environment (birch, stone, grass, etc.). The spatial organization consists of main entrance, wardrobe with toilets, café-restaurant with atrium and bar with storage space.

Vista Del Valle is a 4,400 square feet house in the Sonoma hills that articulates modern forms, site informed design, and soft clean materials. The project is on a steep site with a view out over the valley, with distant views of Mt. Diablo and East Bay. Its multi-axis plan and gently sloped shed roofs create informal active spaces that look modern in form and yet remain soft with light finely-textured stucco and warm clear-grain horizontal cedar siding.

This is the first of 3 buildings projected for the “CARIÑO” institutional program, driven by social manager of Santiago de Cali and the Ministry of Education. It is located in the district 21, east of the city, adjacent to the Cauca River dam, on a lot that for years had been used by the community as a park, but legally would be destined for the construction of an educational institution. The development of the project would generate a new form of living space whereas their new occupants would be children between 2 and 5 years.

Competition Amsterdam footbridge 2012 by Margot Krasojevic
Water management is still the most important function of Amsterdam canals. Without them, the city would drown. Circulating the water is also vital for sanitary reasons. In the days when windmills had to do the job, the stench of the water could become unbearable in periods with little wind or rain.
Three times a week, 14 of the 16 existing waterlocks around the city close up, so clean water can be pumped in from the big lake IJsselmeer. The current that is created pushes the dirty canal water out through the open locks on the other side of the city. Specialized cleaning boats with big scoops and nets patrol frequently clean surface debris. Since 2005, all the houseboats in the city are connected to the sewer system.

The secret garden is one of Italy’s most characteristic places. Enclosed by four walls and protected from the chaos of the town, these gardens were literally private paradises for the use and enjoyment of rich aristocrats or, more often, for monks and nuns.
The booth for Ceramics of Italy is intended to be a little private paradise where people can rest from the chaos of the show and enjoy the best Italian food and coffee.

This project is built on the site of the former headquarters of the Municipal Police and Fire Station, located on 8th Street and Constitution. Which was demolished earlier this year in an unlawful manner by the current mayor of the city. By destroying a part of the history of the city without considering its reuse and conservation, the Project began to wake up public attention and demanding that now the space should be considered for public use.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, Beijing has made huge strides to solidify its position as one of the world’s great cities. It is a city that is modernizing rapidly—skyscrapers are rising out of fallow fields, a new transportation system is extending the reach of the city, and environmental initiatives are improving air and water quality. Fresh ideas are also emerging, while still embracing the rich traditions of the past. Near Songzhuang, a quiet village on the outskirts of Beijing, a unique opportunity exists to create a new urban district dedicated entirely to the cultivation of new ideas.
Public plazas and parks are also used for large gathering spaces for product launches, concerts, and other events

A symbol of China’s, the Great Wall (GWC) snakes through the countryside over deserts, hills and plains. The GWC was created under Qin Empire (221-206 BC), but most of the current wall dates from de Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), with approximately 6.400Km. Around 40% has disappeared, 20% has been restored and 40% is in poor condition, in approximately 2.450Km to apply RGB_Project This proposal aims to generate the occasion and potential of the GWC as a main axis through the northern China, in the boundary with Inner Mongolia, a region that is important as a potential break for advancing desertification and climate change, to generate Green_Spots along this natural path in sustainable and replicable landscape structures to help stop desertification, revitalize the area and be an asset to the population: the N=MxRGB_Project.

Space for faculty and staff (office space) & space for students (studio and library) are interwoven to create variety of mutual activities at the in between plazas. Interweaving is not only happening between the space for faculty and space for students, but also with sunlight, trees and breezes.
